Noah, the sole remaining survivor on our planet after a nuclear holocaust, finds himself unable to to accept his unique predicament. To cope with his loneliness, he creates an imaginary companion, then a companion for his companion and finally an entire civilization - a world of illusion in which there is no reality but Noah, no rules but those of the extinct world of his memory - our world.

Truly remarkable. A one-man film that held my full attention for almost two hours. The storyline is deceptively simple given the complexity of the issues raised: the sole survivor of a nuclear holocaust tries to cope with his new reality by reconstructing, piece by piece, an imaginary civilization based on his memories, fears and desires. It is this illusion that will eventually bring him to face his utter loneliness and powerlessness. Rendered in stark B/W photography, densely punctuated with historical references (including authentic voice recordings of the protagonists of 20th-century history), 'The Noah' is the kind of film that challenges the viewer to see it again and again, each time discovering something new. But where can it be found? I saw it at a CUNY-TV showing years ago. To my knowledge there has not been another TV showing and there is no VHS or DVD of it anywhere.
